Chantale Gagne

Chantale Gagne

Swinging, reflective and melodic, this album is certainly a first laudable effort. “In addition to becoming a very fine pianist, Ms. Gagné is also developing into a quite a composer” – Kenny Barron

A native of Quebec, Canada, jazz pianist Chantale Gagné began studying music at the age of 8. For more than 7 years, the organ was her primary instrument. At 15 however, the piano became Chantale’s true passion.

In 2005, Chantale met famous pianist Kenny Barron and although she studied with him for a short period of time, this encounter proved to be so inspiring to Chantale both as a pianist and composer that she realised jazz had become her deepest calling. – CDBaby.com
